Going to sleep can be a struggle for many people. Those who trouble to sleep would try the “counting sheep” method or take sleep supplements to make them drift off to dreamland in a few minutes, if not right away.
According to the National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep Health Index, 45 percent of Americans said that poor or inadequate sleep impacted their daily activities at least once a week.
We all know how the insufficient sleep can make us tired and grouchy.
World’s 1st sleep robot
A startup, however, has come up with a robot called Somnox. It can help people fall asleep easily and is seeking funds on Kickstarter.
The robot is described as a “sleep companion to improve sleep by breathing regulation, sounds, and affection.”
Somnox’s goal is to help 100,000 people get a good night’s sleep by 2025.
The sleep robot had been featured in The Times and MailOnline where it received glowing reviews.
“It could be your ideal sleeping companion: intelligent, caring, soft yet firm of a body – with an excellent repertoire of pillow talk,” a review on The Times said.
On MailOnline, a review said Somnox could be a “cure for insomnia” because the robot will slow down a person’s breathing to help him or her fall into deep sleep.
Somnox has non-invasive effective features like breathing regulation, soothing audio and affection to lull a user to sleep.
It has a speaker that can be made to play heartbeats, guided meditations, or soft music and a user can even upload his or her choice of audio.
The speaker’s volume goes down as the user drifts off to sleep and the audio ends when the user is already asleep.
The pillow rises and falls like a person’s chest, prompting the user to Somnox’s rhythm, “lulling your brain and body into the perfect sleep state.”
